My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary with a trip to Charleston and Savannah. Booked this hotel for two reasons: one I'm a Marriot Gild member and two the supposed distance to Charleston. We arrived and the front desk checked us in. We went to our room only to be told by the carpet cleaners that it wouldn't be...

We loved this hotel. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was comfy. We especially enjoyed the help of Beth at the front desk. She gave us numerous tips to help us, as this was our first time in Charleston. She told us about the hotel shuttle to the waterfront, only $6 round trip each. She recommended 2...

I selected this hotel because it had a cheaper rate than the downtown hotels, but was just a short ride from downtown. I had a river view room, which also had a view of the pool. The room was clean, but to me smelled faintly of onions (I should add I have a very keen sense of smell). After some...
